A Fire at the Peace Home

It was reported on December 1, 1922 in the Sentinel, “Excitement reigned for a short time Wednesday when the fire alarm sounded and it was reported that the residence of Mr. D.W. Peace was on fire. The fire department quickly responded but the blaze was extinguished before their arrival. A coal had dropped from the range and burned a hole through the floor and would have resulted in a serious fire but for its early discovery.”
I have a picture of this home in my book. Prior to it being known as the home of D.W. Peace, the structure was the Spring Street School which opened its doors in 1881.

The home was located on the corner of Spring and Campbellton Streets.
Today, this location is home to the United States Post Office in Douglasville.

Pictured is a Glenwood stove dated to 1922.
